tpstar: <diceman> Check this out: http://www.cnn.com/2014/12/17/polit... This reminds me of Oprah claiming racism because of how she was treated in a store buying a purse. Do you think the problem is racism, the perception of racism, or reverse racism?
 
   Dec-16-14 Kashdan vs Vidmar, 1931
 
tpstar: White made maximal use of the pin on the Pd6, first to pick off the Pb4 and second to win material with the game-ending 30. Nc5.
 
   Dec-14-14 L Mazi vs G Nierlich, 2001
 
tpstar: This line rocks for White = Opening Explorer 25. e7! is quite a Discovery.
 
   Dec-13-14 A W Ensor vs Blackburne, 1877
 
tpstar: Just when White thinks he is out of the woods, castling by hand only down a Pawn, it all gets ruined by 23. Nf2? Bf3 crashing through against White's King.
 
   Dec-12-14 T Nabaty vs G P Arnaudov, 2010
 
tpstar: 46 ... Nc7 followed by 47 ... Ne6 or 47 ... Nd5 should draw for Black. Instead the sham sacrifice 46 ... Nxb4?! traded down into a worse K&P endgame which White converted nicely.
 
   Dec-12-14 D Iwaniuk vs H Vogel, 2001
 
tpstar: 11 ... Be6 is uncommon = Opening Explorer 17. Rxh4! is a great exchange sacrifice to deflect Black's Queen. After 19. Qxd6+ then 19 ... Qe7? is out due to 20. Nxe6+ with a Discovery on the Rb8. But then 20. Nd5 is another Discovery on the Rb8, leading to 20 ... Re8 21. Ne7+ 1-0 due ...

  Abdel Irada: <FYI, there is one member here who uses "feckless" almost as much as you, and you'll *never* guess who. :P>

I would have thought past tense more appropriate, since if this member is who I think it is, he hasn't said it (or anything else) in some time. (And I suspect most of us would prefer to keep it that way.)

  tpstar: 1) Aronian vs Anand, 2013 An opening bombshell by Anand leads to a shockingly quick win. Bonus points for the setting and the opposition.

2) Anand vs Carlsen, 2013 Carlsen's legendary fighting spirit wins the WC title in style.

3) Morozevich vs V Laznicka, 2013 Black's minor pieces have a field day yet Moro hangs on until the endgame.

4) Wang Hao vs A Giri, 2013 Cute crush at Giri's expense.

5) Ding Liren vs Aronian, 2013 Brilliant attacking game finishing with a Q+R mating net.

6) Mamedyarov vs A Giri, 2013 Shak Diesel.

7) Nakamura vs Caruana, 2013 An opening preparation win by a player not particularly known for his opening preparation.

8) D Dubov vs Shirov, 2013 An inventive and inspired sacrifice by Shirov.

9) Ivanchuk vs Kramnik, 2013 This game had a profound effect on chess history, allowing Carlsen to advance as the Challenger.

10) Kramnik vs D Andreikin, 2013 Beautiful RR over Q endgame by Kramnik who ruled the World Cup.

  OhioChessFan: You know how you want to point out something to reveal wrongdoing, but in advertising it you warn people off? For example, I knew a woman who was pretty sure her teenage son was visiting some sites online that she didn't approve of. She asked how she could verify that. I suggested she check the history cache after he signed off. She happily reported back to me that it was normally empty. And, of course, that was pretty strong evidence he was visiting those sites. I am a bit surprised how many parents can't connect the dots on that one, but if it's publicized somewhere, it will warn the kids off of that dodge.

On a related note, I suspect I'm not the only person to notice a <very> discernible posting habit of a certain individual that is remarkably similar to a previous member of this site. Some allusions have been made as to whether certain individual is another incarnation of previous member. Certain indvidual is demanding proof they are in fact the previous member. Circumstantial evidence tells me that it is, and if I cited it, most reasonable people would agree. But if I cited it, it would warn off certain individual from the revealing posting technique.

Okay, I feel better.

Aug-30-14  zborris8: <tpstar> I've been a lurker, but know that you have a keen ability to create witty puns for the CG puzzles.

I've just submitted the game below -- See the position at the end of move 13, for potential puzzle, white to move:

I am writing to request a tpstar pun for this puzzle by "October", if you catch my "meaning", and you think it worthy of a CG puzzle, obviously. If not, well, at least CG grows by 1 fine game in the database!

  tpstar: <zborris8> Nice to meet you. =)

I saw that puzzle during the St. Louis broadcast and totally flailed on the solution. It would make for an excellent Daily Puzzle which would not require a pun, or else a great Game of the Day which would need a pun. "Mad Max" is already taken but maybe something utilizing "grave" would work. I hesitate to divulge my material now due to the rampant anti-Americanism on this site whenever Nakamura plays major events. But I'll sleep on it. ;>D

See you around.

Aug-30-14  zborris8: Hi tpstar, nice meeting you as well. When I submitted the .pgn I wrote in the description about the presentation of the game on the st.louis broadcast by Maurice Ashley, so hopefully the 'powers-that-be' recognize the game, and it goes through quickly - at least that way it will be in the website before you wake up, and you will not forget any puns you create in your sleep!

Cheers!
